New Deal sites in Manhattan's Central Park. Photos (except where otherwise indicated) taken by me on July 16, 2015, walking from south (59th Street) to north (110th Street) and presented in that order.

Although Central Park was created in the 1850s from plans by Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, many of the features we see there today are New Deal projects:
